Premium economy deals from the East Coast to Asia are pretty rare, so this cheap Finnair deal to Seoul immediately caught our eye.

Here’s what you need to know about the deal.

Fare Deal — The Details

This deal is from New York (JFK) to Seoul (ICN) on Finnair premium economy, with a stop each way in Helsinki (HEL).

All legs are operated on Finnair’s Airbus A350 jets. Premium economy seats are arranged in a 2-4-2 configuration with a 38-inch seat pitch and a 13-inch inflight entertainment (IFE) screen. You’ll also enjoy 2 full meals in premium economy.

Keep in mind that Finnair’s Premium Economy Light is pretty restrictive. You won’t be able to receive a refund or change your ticket, and you’ll have to pay for seat selection and checked baggage. Still, this is a pretty solid deal if you’re looking for a more comfortable way to fly to South Korea.

Play with some dates on Google Flights and then book directly with Finnair for the best rates:

  • Class: Premium Economy
  • Route: New York (JFK) to Seoul (ICN)
  • Dates: January to May 2024; August to November 2024
  • Rates: As low as $1,873 round-trip

How To Book

There’s good availability throughout 2024, except for June and July, which are more expensive months on this route. If your travel plans are flexible, you shouldn’t have too much trouble finding a ticket under $2,000.

Either way, you should book your flights using a credit card to maximize flight purchases. Here are some of the best travel cards out right now:

Final Thoughts

This is an excellent deal for a notoriously expensive New York to Seoul route. While you’ll have a stopover each way in Finland, you’ll also have a dedicated premium economy cabin with amenities such as enhanced meals, more legroom, and even lounge access (for an added fee).
